Taste his heirloom apples

zekegoodband.jpg

This handsome dude is Zeke Goodband, whom I first met some years ago at Alyson's Apple Orchard in Walpole, N.H., where he was head orchardist and introduced the heirloom apple program. Now Zeke is growing his beautiful fruits at Scott Farm in Dummerston, Vt.

On Sunday, Oct. 28, Zeke is bringing his Ashmead's Kernel, Esopus Spitzenberg and other heirlooms to Arnold Arboretum at noon, to guide you through a tasting of 15 varieties raw, five baked, and heirloom ciders as well. There's nothing in the world of apples that this gentleman doesn't know. Cost is $20 and Scott Farm apples will be for sale (cash only). The event is sponsored by Slow Food Boston. Arnold Arboretum is taking reservations (617-524-1718, ext 160).

If you see Zeke, tell him I have never ever left an apple unrefrigerated since the day I met him, and that Mutsu, which he introduced me to, are still my all-time favorite fruits.
